NSCer Senior Director for Central Region Dennis Ross leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue because of “commitments to his family.”

Ross: “It has been an honor to work in the Obama Administration and to serve this President, particularly during a period of unprecedented change in the broader Middle East. Obviously, there is still work to do but I promised my wife I would return to government for only two years and we both agreed it is time to act on my promise.”
